Crap untrue advice. The error simply means Avast was unable to extract the files to scan them. That can mean that the cab file is corrupted (for a number of reasons), that it cannot be accessed, or even that the file isn't a true cabinet file. As far as malware goes, you can ignore the error completely. But for the future health of your PC you probably want to investigate why this file couldn't be extracted by Avast.

it actually depends where the archive is located. If it's in the IE Temp directory you just clean it from the IE settings or manually. The message from the antivirus could come from the fact that it is unable to open it for examination. So the message could mean nothing. If you have no problem don't fix.
